Now here's something new: A diary entry for which I'm not
the author! nickofearth sent me some pictures of some fake WWE e-Cards,
with a small text that explains how they could be used, and I decided to show
you his work. It's a short read, but pictures are worth a thousand words,
Wrestlers on a card!
The Nintendo e-Reader can be used to sell special e-Reader-enhanced sport
trading cards. The WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) could use this to
sell cards of their superstars. The front would look like a normal trading
card while the back would have instructions on using the e-Reader capabilities.
Most of the trading cards would have a short barcode on the bottom edge of the
card that would contain simple wrestler stats or career highlights.
Some cards would actually have barcodes that would need to be scanned
consecutively to load both the wrestler's current entrance movie and theme.
Or it could possibly be a short movie clip of the wrestler's finishing move.
They could sell the cards in packs of 8 or 10 for $5.00 or less just like
normal sport cards. I am sure that pro wrestling fans, myself included,
would try to collect them all. Especially since this wouldn't limit it to
one sport or one series of cards.
